Sponge were formed in Detroit by guitarist Mike Cross and singer Mark
"Vinnie" Dombroski after the demise of Loudhouse, a mediocre industrial metal
band. Joined by slide guitarist Joey Mazzola, they recorded
Rotting Pinata (Chaos, 1994), an album of
uninspired albeit occasionally infectious grunge-pop
(Plowed, Molly, Rotting Pinata and Drownin).
Horns, piano and cello embellish the decadent concept album
Wax Ecstatic (Columbia, 1996). An Inxs-like
Wax Ecstatic did well on the charts, but a misplaced
David Bowie pathos ruined most of the ballads.
New Pop Sunday (Beyond/BMG, 1999) offers the best imitation of Bowie yet
(Planet Girls) and a batch of catchy refrains
(Polyanna, Live Her Without You), but the slide down glam-rock
and pop has taken away whatever artistic merit Sponge's music had.
